Meet the artist and delight in her mastery of color and light, captured in breathtaking original paintings and limited-edition prints.
“We all know the feeling of experiencing a dream so real and vivid that when we wake, we lived it. I feel this way about my art”. -Liudmila Kondakova
The works of art by Liudmila Kondakova are so vibrant with clarity and light they reflect in their extraordinary draftsmanship a sense of artistic and spiritual well-being. Her meticulous attention to detail allows us to become intimately involved in the life of her paintings. In the artist's words: "To me, these streets, with their worn cobblestones and aged buildings, evoke a sense of nostalgia and romance with a touch of melancholy. It is the ideal kind of space."
Liudmila Kondakova grew up in Russia, studied at the Grabar Center in Moscow and attended Russia’s School of Sacred Arts and the Moscow Art Institute, before immigrating to the United States in 1991. Her artistic gifts talent and idealized vision of Paris has served as the foundation and inspiration of much of her magnificent work. Both Russian and Byzantine sensibilities influence the palette and icons throughout her paintings. Kondakova often finds herself chasing after a particular hour of the day in her paintings; she searches for the perfect hour to reveal all the magic of the color.
